Spookfontein – a wine and olive farm situated in the Hemel and Aarde valley – is home to an unbelievable selection of birdlife ranging from the gracious blue cranes to buzzards, owls and hoopoes. The farm has more than 100 hectares of fynbos stretching up the mountainside to border Hermanus’s Fernkloof nature reserve at its highest point.

Spookfontein is a wonderful getaway offering the tranquility of huge expanses of fynbos and mountain walks and yet providing many activities for adults and children and accessibility to the Hemel and Aarde wine route and nearby Hermanus beaches.
